Antique Tibetan Diadem Buddhist Ritual Crown aka Ringga
Please refer to our stock # T110 when inquiring.
This is a Tibetan Ritual Celestial Crown also know as a Diadem or Ringga. It is worn by a necromancer or oracle during rituals. The "crown" consists of 5 separate paintings on paper and each painting is backed with thin cardboard for stiffness. The sections are connected with string. When worn, the crown is tied around the head with string. The sections are painted with the five Dhayani, celestial Buddhas, each painted with his traditional color and gesture. Each section is 4 wide by 6.5 high.
This relic was brought to the US over 50 years ago and was stored in a box along with various other relics accumulated on a trek from Istanbul to Nepal. Condition is good and the colors are still crisp and clear.
